Koepka named PGA Tour Player of the Year

Koepka named PGA Tour Player of the Year

Dustin Johnson sent a congratulatory message to Brooks Koepka after he was named PGA Tour Player of the Year, despite the pair being involved in an altercation at the Ryder Cup.

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said in a statement: "On behalf of the PGA TOUR, our congratulations to Brooks Koepka on being voted PGA Tour Player of the Year by his peers". "It's been a roller-coaster year, being on the sidelines for four months and then to come out and win two majors". It was the first time someone has defended at the U.S. Open since Curtis Strange did it in 1989.

The race has been mostly decided since the conclusion of the PGA Championship at Bellerive, when Brooks Koepka ran away the from the field to capture his third major championship and second of the 2018 major season.

"These feats were accomplished despite missing significant time due to injury, a testament to his work ethic and perseverance throughout the season".

PGA Tour members who have played in at least 15 FedEx Cup events in the 2017-18 season were eligible to vote.

Thomas had echoed those sentiments when the PGA Tour offered up options for the Player of the Year, writing on twitter "Just give BK the trophy!"

Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson have done their best to downplay reports about them almost getting into a physical altercation at the Ryder Cup, and we would rather take their word for it than be treated to another horrifically uncomfortable video like they one they put out on Tuesday.
